Digital Whisper Challenge - Ice Creams

Sorry, I think it has already happened!  Having fun with an old image on my computer and a Googled icecream cone. 

Take a Word Challenge - Bright Colours

I took this week's theme too literally perhaps.  I painted the colorful background (in ArtRage) and overlaid it with a brush of two Victorian ladies. They probably wouldn't have been amused.

Digital Whisper Challenge - LITTLE BOYS

This comes from a very old family album.  The studio photograph of my father (aged four) has been extracted and coloured and placed on a lovely background by Itkupilli. The photo was taken in 1898. Michael McDonnell, born in 1894, lived to the ripe old age of 102 and died in 1996.

Take a Word Challenge - GREEN

Although I am a fourth-generation Australian my heritage is 100% Irish so I celebrate St Patrick's Day by turning my artwork green.  A lot of vegetables died in making this picture - broccoli, lettuce, a lot of cabbage, honey dew melon slices (ears), avocado bow tie, sweet corn "buttonhole" and, my piece-de-resistance, zucchini shoes.
